The ICRC made a pledge on missing persons, to review all methods of preventing disappearances, of processing cases of missing persons and of assisting their families, and then to agree on common practices in this area and move the issue further up the international agenda. Since then, the ICRC has continued to expand its activities related to missing persons and their families. This publication provides a summary of the work achieved so far and highlights a number of examples of the different activities that the ICRC has undertaken in the frame of its operations and its plan of action.
